    What are Gall Stones ?

    Gallstones are stone-like objects of digestive fluid that form in your gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small sac located on the right side of the abdomen, just below the liver. It stores and releases bile, a fluid made in your liver that helps in the digestion process.

    The size of gallstones ranges from as small as a grain of sand to that of a golf ball. Some people develop one gallstone, while others can develop multiple at the same time. You might not know you have gallstones until they block bile ducts that cause pain and need immediate treatment.

    The best gastroenterologists at the Gut care clinic, in this article, explain the types, symptoms, causes, and treatment of gallstones and how to prevent them.

    Symptoms of gallbladder stones

    The majority of people with gallstones are asymptomatic. However, patients with gallstones can experience the signs and symptoms that include:

    • Rapid pain in the upper right of your abdomen.
    • Pain in the center of the belly
    • Pain in the right shoulder or back
    • An upset stomach
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Other digestive problems, such as indigestion, heartburn, or gas


    See your doctor if you have symptoms of a serious infection or inflamed gallbladder that include:

    • Belly pain that lasts for long
    • Yellow skin or eyes
    • Fever and chills
    • Dark urine and light-colored stools

    Causes of gallstones

    • The exact causes of gallstones are not unknown, but they might happen when:
    • Bile contains high cholesterol: In general, bile contains enough chemicals to dissolve the cholesterol excreted by the liver. But if the liver excretes more cholesterol than the bile can dissolve, it may form into stones.
    • Bile contains bilirubin:  Bilirubin is a chemical produced when your body breaks down red blood cells. Conditions that cause your liver to make too much bilirubin include liver cirrhosis, biliary tract infections, and certain blood disorders. This excess bilirubin can lead to gallstones. 
    • Gallbladder not emptying correctly: If your gallbladder doesn't empty enough, bile may become concentrated which can lead to the formation of gallstones.


    The doctor might suspect gallbladder stones if the patient reports severe pain for hours around the top of the abdomen. He may carry out a physical examination to determine the presence of Jaundice.

    Other tests to diagnose gallbladder stones include:

    • Blood tests: These will be carried out to check for signs of jaundice or inflammation

    Ultrasound: scan: A procedure that uses sound waves to create an image of the inside of the body. 

    • CT scan: A combination of x-rays and computer technology to create images of the gallbladder, and bile ducts that show gallstones or infection of the gallbladder.
    • Cholescintigraphy (HIDA scan): This imaging test is used to see the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and small intestine by injecting a radioactive tracer.

    Treatments for Gall Stones

    If the gallstones are not causing any symptoms, then it may not be necessary to have treatment. However, if they are causing pain and discomfort then they have to be removed by: 

    • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy: This is the most common surgery to remove the gallbladder. The surgeon makes small incisions on the right side of your abdomen (belly) and uses one incision to insert a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera on the end. This shows your gallbladder on a screen and then gets removed through another small incision.
    • Open cholecystectomy: An effective method for treating symptomatic gallstones that are causing significant pain and discomfort. During this procedure, direct visualization of the gallbladder, bile duct, and blood vessels allows safe and effective removal of the gallbladder.
